Top 12 Reasons to Vote for a Democrat

Comments Off on Top 12 Reasons to Vote for a Democrat

This one is funny and sooo true at the same time!!!

When your family or friends cannot explain why they voted for a Democrat, give them this list.

1. I voted for a Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

2. I voted for a Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

 

3. I voted for a Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

4. I voted for a Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers, rapists, thugs, and thieves.

5. I voted for a Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will disappear in ten years because of Global Warming if I don’t start driving a Prius or a Chevy Volt.

6. I voted for a Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

7. I voted for a Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

8. I voted for a Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted for a Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution regularly to suit some fringe folks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted for a Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill for our own because it might upset some useless endangered beetle, gopher, or fish.

11. I voted for a Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE.”

12. I voted for a Democrat because my head is so firmly buried in the sand that it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

CNN POLL: 75% Of Financial Experts Say Romney Victory Would Improve Markets

Comments Off on CNN POLL: 75% Of Financial Experts Say Romney Victory Would Improve Markets

Gosh, from CNN none the less:

One commenter says:

“Seriously, did we really need a poll to tell us this?”

Another commenter said:

Even if you don’t like Mitt the election is all about getting Obama out of the Oval Office.
I’d vote for a sparkplug.  If Mitt doesn’t live up to expectations we can kick his butt out too in four years.  Anybody but Obama.

A recent CNNMoney survey found that 75% of money managers and investment strategists believe a Mitt Romney victory would lift U.S. markets.  The survey also found that “many are also hoping for the GOP to gain control of both the House and the Senate.”

Leading up to the November elections, 80 percent of those surveyed agreed that the stock market will remain volatile and possibly get worse.

John Praveen, managing director and chief investment strategist for Prudential International Investments Advisers says investors are not sanguine about lawmakers’ ability to keep America from driving off the fiscal cliff:

“In case investors are not sufficiently convinced that policy makers and politicians are up to the task of handling the fiscal cliff in a reasonably effective manner, financial markets are likely to again fall sharply, similar to the plunge around the debt ceiling debacle in 2011.”

Chase Investment Counsel President Peter Tuz was more direct:

“At this point, I think markets would appreciate a clear Republican mandate.  That provides the best chance for continued low tax rates. If investors see the likelihood of an Obama victory, coupled with Democrats retaining control of the Senate, they will react by taking advantage of the low tax rates that still exist, so a sell-off in markets would be a distinct possibility.”

The sputtering U.S. economic recovery, the European debt crisis, the slowing of growth in China, the need to cut government spending, and the looming expiration of the Bush tax cuts were cited as troubling economic signs for America’s financial future.

Christian Right Warns Romney on Condioleezza Rice VP Pick

Comments Off on Christian Right Warns Romney on Condioleezza Rice VP Pick

Some social conservative leaders, alarmed that Mitt Romney may choose former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as his running mate, have contacted the Romney campaign to warn that doing so would be a political disaster.

Their primary concern: Although Rice opposes late-term abortion and favors parental consent, she has described herself as “mildly pro-choice.”

A broad range of Christian leaders contacted by Newsmax expressed admiration for Rice, but warned that a pro-choice running mate would seriously damage Romney’s standing with the GOP faithful whose avid support he will need in November.

Dr. Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, told Newsmax: “I contacted my contacts within the campaign and said, ‘You can’t do this.’”

Land expressed strong admiration for Rice, and said he would be delighted to see her land a top job elsewhere in a Romney administration. But not as his vice president.

“The key here is this is the first nomination in a proposed Romney administration,” he explained, “and it cannot be someone who’s pro-choice, because that reactivates all the old doubts about whether pro-life is a preference, or a conviction, with the Romney administration.”

Choosing Rice for the No. 2 job, Land added “would deactivate some pro-life activists and contributors into being mere voters, and some mere voters into being fishermen” — meaning they wouldn’t bother to vote at all.

Other Christian leaders have echoed those sentiments. On Friday, Fox News host and former GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee, whose own name has been floated for the job, declared it would be “a disaster” if Romney were to name Rice his No. 2.

“They’d sit on their hands,” Huckabee said of his fellow social conservatives. “Absolutely they will.”

Rice’s prominence in the vice presidential discussion has been rising ever since she delivered a rousing speech at a Romney strategy conclave last month in Utah. The buzz culminated with a report Friday, attributed to anonymous sources, stating Rice had emerged as the top contender for the vice presidential nod.

Dr. Robert P. George, founder of the American Principles Project, told Newsmax he is highly skeptical that report is accurate. It was George who elicited Romney’s explicit pledge to nominate a pro-life running mate at the Palmetto Freedom Forum.

At that event, Romney first said he “would expect” his running mate would be pro-life and pro-traditional marriage. When George sought clarification, Romney said: “Yes … that person would share my views, yeah.”

“Initially he used the word ‘expectation,’ recalled George. “I pressed him on it, and he made the commitment.”

Since the Rice trial balloon went up, George told Newsmax his phone has been ringing off the hook with social-conservative callers questioning whether Romney can be trusted to make pro-life appointments, including Supreme Court nominations.

George said he has been reassuring them that unless Rice is willing to renounce her pro-choice stance, “That’s not going to happen.”

He added: “When a man of integrity gives you his word, he keeps his word. Mitt Romney is a man of integrity.”

Gary L. Bauer, president of the pro-life, traditional-marriage American Values organization, demurred when asked if he has been in touch with the Romney campaign over the Rice issue. But he said he sent an e-mail on the topic to his members and conducted an informal poll. By about a 3-to-1 margin, he said, his members oppose a Romney-Rice ticket.

Obama Breaks the Law: Has Fundraisers in Sweden, Paris,Switzerland & Communist China

Steve posted this article on Facebook, so I’m re-posting it here with the section from the FEC.gov website that proves this is illegal. But, hey with this lawless President, what does he care? He’s been doing this all along when he doesn’t get his way, he just does it anyway and gets away with it.

It is ILLEGAL to accept campaign contributions from foreign countries:

The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment.

Fundraisers are scheduled in Switzerland:

Sweden:

Paris:

And Communist China:
